Crews control four-alarm fire in west San Jose
SAN JOSE, CA -- A shelter-in-place warning that was in place for a half-mile area south of a fire at a commercial building in west San Jose that briefly went to five-alarms has now been lifted, fire Capt. Chuck Rangel said.
Fire officials called a fifth alarm around 4:30 p.m. to bring in mutual aid from nearby jurisdictions to rotate out fire crews, and not because the fire worsened, Rangel said.
Firefighters had the blaze controlled by around 5:05 p.m., and the shelter-in-place warning was lifted at around 5:45 p.m., he said.
The fire was reported at 1:52 p.m. at 1701 Rogers Ave., a building that houses a handful of businesses, Rangel said.
Firefighters arrived on scene minutes later and found the building in flames about 30 feet high, Rangel said.
Rangel said that about 90 percent of the building, which is approximately 150 feet by 400 feet, was consumed by the fire.
No injuries have been reported due to the fire.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation, he said.
